Industrial Internet of Things
Our tailored Industrial Internet of Things solutions will guide your
enterprise digital transformation, from start to finish.
What is an IIoT Solution?
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) was initially viewed as a way to monitor and access production data with a focus on operational efficiency and cost optimization in the facility. While those opportunities still exist, and have been extended to include data from transportation/logistics, energy, and greater ERP integration; even more opportunities lie beyond monitoring existing production - towards innovating how and what we're producing. These innovations are part of the current Fourth Industrial Revolution known as Industry 4.0.
For industrial environments, the technology adoption curve has been conservative in comparison to those in commercial and enterprise businesses. This is because, in most cases, Operations Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) have different expectations and understandings of each other’s objectives. As a result, OT personnel are aware that they need to upgrade legacy technology, and migrate their critical applications to modern and secure plant floor systems – but it’s hard to know where to start.
Especially concerning is the fear of inadequate security, and these fears are not unfounded. While your IT department has cyber-security at the forefront, inconsistent collaboration with OT personnel can deepen the risk.
